SHOCK!!! SOCIAL JUSTICE WARRIORS DEMAND KANSAS CITY CONFEDERATE GRAVE MEMORIALS REMOVED!!!
As racial tensions across the nation reach a boiling point following a weekend of deadly culture war protest and a fumbling reaction from Prez Trump . . . Kansas City activists are looking to act locally.
To wit . . .
SOCIAL MEDIA CULTURE WARRIORS ARE TARGETING KANSAS CITY CONFEDERATE GRAVE MEMORIALS FOR DESECRATION!!!
Mind you, there's a big difference betwixt protesting something in a public square vs. going onto private property and attacking a grave site. Sadly, rage from extremists on both sides of this issue seems to guiding the discussion.
(A confederate memorial) at Union Cemetery and one at 55th and Ward Parkway. Will Council remove them or should the people do it themselves like in #Durham??
The Ward Parkway memorial is probably fair game but the thought of protesters going into a cemetery is kinda ghoulish and the subject of this post . . .
To be fair, there is also an effort to get council to pass a resolution against Confederate iconography given that Durham protesters who recently toppled a statue are now being arrested.
Nevertheless . . . The point here is that the fight against the ghosts of the Confederacy is underway in Kansas City as locals would rather rage against cable news content than think about infrastructure, crime, development debates or any legislation that's currently impacting the lives to locals.
